Sheffield residents set to celebrate their love for the steel city this weekend

9 May 2019

An event which will celebrate the local talent and culture Sheffield has to offer is set to take place in the city centre this Saturday.

#LoveSheffDay, which will be in the Peace Gardens, will include a day of poetry reading and a fun fair, as well as live music from singers and bands across the steel city.

The Lord mayor, Magid Magid, is hoping people from across the city will come out and show their love for Sheffield.

“There is so much talent here, but I’ve often found we don’t shout about this place enough,” he said.

“So I’m using this event to celebrate Sheffield and to encourage the world why people love Sheffield.”

The Tin Soldiers, a 20-piece band that consists of 18 horns, electric bass and drums, will headline #LoveSheffDay, as well as contributions from Matthew Hunt and Amy Harman of resident group Ensemble 360.

The event is free to the public between 12 and 6pm, and it will be followed by a leaving party for the Lord Mayor.

Councillor Magid will leave his role on May 15, a year after he became Sheffield’s youngest Lord Mayor.

The event starts at 8pm at Plug Nightclub, and tickets for the event can be found here:
